A labor of love

I create this podcast with my co-host Robert Coburn. Every week we dig deep into the week's stock market news, from earnings to macroeconomic data to Elon Musk tweets. We explain how we're trading the news and what market-moving news might be headed your way in the coming week. We spend a lot of time putting it together and (so far, at least) make no money doing it. It's a labor of love, and I really hope it's useful to you and helps you become a better trader!
